Paolo Scavino established the estate in 1921 in the historic township of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the Langhe region in Piemont.
The estate is owned and managed by two generations of Scavino; Enrico who followed in the footsteps of his father Paolo, and his daughters Enrica and Elisa.
The Scavino vineyards include parcels in the Cannubi, the most famous historical cru of Barolo, Cru Via Nuova and, Vignane, another the township of Barolo.The modern history of the Scavino family starts with a vineyard known int he local dialect as Bric dël Fiasc within the Fiasco cru. Here the Nebbiolo grapes yield consistently great wines. In 1978 young Enrico convinced his father Paolo to vinify these grapes separately. In this way this much sought-after cru was established and it has since risen to the summit of Barolo. Scavino also produces some excellent Barbera d'Alba and Dolcetto d'Alba.
